As the federal government is reviewing the Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Radiocommunication Acts, in addition to the market evolution as a result of both new technologies and the government’s Creative Canada Policy Framework, the Canada Media Fund will be holding consultations across the country.
These meetings will drive the recommendations made to government as stakeholders, in addition to policies and programs implemented as a result. The Canada Media Fund will be holding their local consultations in Edmonton and Calgary on September 18 and 19 respectively. Specific time and location details will be updated as information comes available.
Additionally, they have announced Industry Working Groups and Advisory Committees to be held in late October and early November. Details are currently sparse, but will be released at: https://cmf-fmc.ca/industry-engagement/outreach-consultation/working-groups-2018.
